The most important thing to do after an accident injury is to see a doctor as soon as possible and follow the doctor’s orders. With all the bills, paperwork, and time missed from work dealing with a wrecked vehicle, some accident victims lose sight of the single most important thing to do after an accident: Make sure you heal. Many victims have pain and continued limitations for the rest of their lives because they did not follow doctor’s orders and take the time to properly heal. We know that insurance adjusters comb through medical records to find out if you have missed appointments, failed to take your medication, or failed to do at-home exercises or other treatments per the doctor’s orders – and adjusters use this evidence against paying for your injury claim. In the adjuster’s mind, they simply say: “Well, you must not have been hurt that bad, if you missed appointments.” Likewise, when you miss appointments, you create gaps of time in your treatment where adjusters will try to stop paying your claim at that point because it had been 10 days or more since your last doctor visit.
